Number of Servings: 2


    * 1/4 cup lemon juice
    * 2 tablespoons olive oil
    * 3/4 teaspoon garlic, minced- divided use
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    * 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch strips
    * 1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
    * 1/3 cup nonfat yogurt, plain or low-fat yogurt
    * 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
    * 2 gyro bread or pita bread
    * 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced


# Combine lemon juice, oil, 1/2 t of the garlic, mustard and oregano in a gallon zip top plastic bag.
Add chicken and seal bag.
Turn bag and gently move chicken around to distribute marinade evenly.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
In a small bowl combine cucumber, yogurt, dill and remaining garlic. Cover and refrigerate until serving. (NOTE: Cucumbers have a lot of moisture in them so if you want your sauce to be less runny really drain them well and squeeze the water out if you want.).
Drain chicken, discarding marinade.
In a large nonstick skillet saute the chicken for 7-8 minutes or until juices run clear.
Spoon half the chicken on each pita and top with cucumber mixture and sliced onion.
Lettuce and tomato may be added if you like.
Fold in half and enjoy.

  • Sounds delicious! I'll make it tonight. :)
    FYI-- You should check your calorie count on the chix. Individual serving should be based on 4oz of chix (half of the 1/2 lb). It drops the cal count by about 135.
    444 sounds a lot better than 579. ;)
